AIM is a child centred model of supports, involving seven levels of progressive support, moving from the universal supports at levels 1-3, to the targeted supports at levels 4-7. These supports are based on the needs of the child and the service provider within the context of the preschool environment. The targeted levels of support are tailored to individual child and service, and accessing these supports do not require a prior diagnosis.
In the event that further additional support may be necessary to meet the needs of a particular child, providers can apply for one or more targeted supports under levels 4 – 7 of the model. This is done through Better Start, and administered on PIP. If you require support or information around how to make an application under AIM please contact the office on 056-7752865.
